Sample text

It’s not an exact science, of course, and no matter how sophisticated the computer modeling becomes, it will never be completely accurate. Why? Because whenever you attempt to model LTV, you’re essentially trying to predict the future, and in the end, you can’t tell for sure what a customer’s future behavior will be any more than you can forecast the future performance of a publicly traded stock, or the weather in March a year from now, or what fashion hits will really take off next fall. Nevertheless, the basic principle that a customer’s asset value should be thought of in terms of the future cash flows he represents is very useful, especially when you consider how this asset value goes up and down on a daily basis with the customer’s current experience.

If your own employees don’t believe in some of your products and services but feel they have to sell them anyway, what does that say about your customers’ ability to believe anything you or your employees say? How do you find your way out before your competitors jump-start the process by cleaning up their act and exposing you for the bad guy your customers may already believe you are? Has anything like this ever happened to you? An acquaintance of ours—we’ll call this one “Jack”—told us he had been the customer of the same mobile phone company for just over 10 years, spending an average $100 or more per month—probably more than $12,000 in revenue for the phone company during his tenure.

The pure randomness of any single customer’s future behavior, as seen from the perspective of today, means that the only way a business can actually “calculate” customer lifetime value (LTV) is by applying statistical techniques to a large population of customers and inferring their likely future behaviors from their known historical patterns and other indications. The analysis can be very sophisticated but, as with stock markets, if your estimate of an individual LTV is no more than 50% less or 100% more than the actual, perhaps we should count it as accurate enough.
